Eagles – It's Your World Now lyrics

A perfect day, the sun is sinkin' low
As evening falls, the gentle breezes blow
The time we shared went by so fast
Just like a dream, we knew it couldn't last
But I'd do it all again
If I could, somehow
But I must be leavin' soon
It's your world now

It's your world now
My race is run
I'm moving on
Like the setting sun
No sad goodbyes
No tears allowed
You'll be alright
It's your world now

Even when we are apart
You'll always be in my heart
When dark clouds appear in the sky
Remember true love never dies

But first a kiss, one glass of wine
Just one more dance while there's still time
My one last wish: someday, you'll see
How hard I tried and how much you meant to me

It's your world now
Use well the time
Be part of something good
Leave something good behind
The curtain falls
I take my bow
That's how it's meant to be
It's your world now
It's your world now
It's your world now

    This is the last song on the album. Because he was getting older and suffered ill health I wonder whether Glen Frey knew he might not make many more. The curtain falls suggests a performance, and 'leave something good behind' is what he has done. RIP Glen Frey and thanks for all the wonderful music.

    My husband had just died a few months before I heard this song for the first time. I was still so devastated by the loss. He died from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and I had just started to train for a marathon through Team In Training. The lines "It's your world now, Use well the time, Be part of something good, Leave something good behind" definitely applied. I would listen to this song and cry and cry and cry. At some point the crying stopped and now when I listen to the song, it brings a smile.
